-This Ryan Reynolds tweet made me laugh a lot.

-Speaking of Jake Gyllenhaal, he’s reportedly dating a 22-year-old model. Sure.

-Wait, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had two more wedding receptions this week? Is this just their life now?

-An old video of Chris Rock, Louis CK and Ricky Gervais freely talking about using the n-word on stage has resurfaced, and people are not happy. (Jerry Seinfeld was also part of the conversation, but acquitted himself well by seeming uncomfortable and refusing to repeat the word: “You’ve found the humour of it. I haven’t found it, nor do I seek it.”)

-On the Tonight Show, Felicity Jones attempted some Beyonce moves and it went better than you’d expect.

-Old Beyonce songs were leaked on Spotify somehow, and everyone melted down thinking they were new. (They were not. Bah humbug!)

Dylan O’Brien and Britt Robertson, who’ve been dating since 2012, have reportedly split.

Demi Lovato took to Twitter to deny the “sources” of a recent tabloid story about her recovery. She added: “Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.. but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal.”

Colin Farrell used a recent talk show appearance to shine a spotlight on his friend who’s suffering from Epidermolysis bullosa.

-This is an interesting interview with showrunners over the need for Hollywood to learn how to handle sex scenes better. This is a side effect of peak TV: a bunch of writers/directors are now running TV shows who have no idea deal with people management.

Sandra Bullock‘s new Netflix movie Bird Box isn’t getting great reviews.  According to my Twitter feed, people don’t seem to care.

-This is a good piece about feeling alienated from a lot of the “girl power” messaging at the movies and TV this year. I follow an academic on Twitter who’s summed this phenomenon up perfectly: plastic representation.

Gillian Anderson Debuts New Look, New Line

Gillian Anderson for Winser London

Gillian Anderson teamed up with Winser London for a new collection  and this look is a MOOD. Talk about BDE.

Ruth Wilson continues to be cryptic about her exit from The Affair, but promises there’s “a much bigger story” behind it. “It isn’t about pay parity, and it wasn’t about other jobs…But I’m not really allowed to talk about it.” I’m so curious!!

-In other news, she’s reportedly returning to the new season of Luther? YES!! I don’t even know how that’s possible storywise, and I don’t care.

-Wow, critics are LOVING First Man starring Ryan Gosling, which just opened in Venice.

-Venice is always known for grand entrances, but Lady Gaga’s takes the cake.

-I was really hoping Prince Harry would continue the song at a performance of Hamilton last night, but he only attempted the opening line.

Michael B Jordan challenged Will Smith to a cook off — and Gordon Ramsey offered to judge.

Emmy Rossum has hinted that she’s leaving Shameless in an emotional Facebook post to her fans. “I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.” I know Showtime is known for beating dead horses, but the show should really end now.

-I’m soo curious why HBO made Tom & Lorenzo take down their series on Sharp Objects’s fashion because of “how much they were giving away.” The show is over. It’s based on a book. If people wanted to be spoiled, there are better ways than an article on its wardrobe.

-If Drake and Kanye West are going to continue this feud, they’re going to have to do more than talk in emojis for me to care.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is teasing Jaime’s relationship with Brienne in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones and this is really all I want to watch now.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who was confused by TATBILB’s magical nightgown. (How did it not billow up in the hot tub?)

-Meanwhile, it’s weird af that people are shipping Lana Condor and Noah Centineo IRL. I mean, I get it because they have crazy chemistry, but it’s still weird. I’m glad the actors don’t seem too freaked out by it.

-Oh man, Mo Ryan gets INTO IT in her Hollywood Reporter column on Louis C.K.‘s set: “He controlled, in a monstrous way, the manner of his professional return — and then he used the word ‘rape’ in his set. For laughs. For a ‘joke’ about how rape whistles are ‘unclean.’ What the fuck? What the FUCK? He’s not done narcissistically inflicting pain on unsuspecting people. This past week proves that beyond a doubt…He didn’t take even one step down the road to a new chapter. Instead, he twisted the knife. He told a joke about rape whistles. He actually invoked sexual violence in that set.”

Roxanne Gay also wrote an excellent piece on it for the New York Times:  “We spend so little energy thinking about justice for victims and so much energy thinking about the men who perpetrate sexual harassment and violence. We worry about what will become of them in the wake of their mistakes. We don’t worry as much about those who have suffered at their hands.”

-In the first trailer for Jason Reitman’s The Front Runner, Hugh Jackman plays Gary Hart, a politician whose White House potential was derailed by an affair.

-I’m intrigued for the trailer for I Think We’re Alone Now, Reed Morano’s film starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning.

Crazy Rich Asians’ Constance Wu Covers Marie Claire Malaysia

Constance Wu Covers Marie Claire Malaysia

Jennifer Garner is poised to make a big splash with her Alias-reminiscent thriller Peppermint, so I really wanted her to BRING IT at the premiere. But this dress is a wrinkly mess.

-The Guy Ritchie-directed live-action Aladdin is reportedly doing reshoots because Disney wasn’t happy that they were using makeup to make the white actors look more Middle Eastern. So, they were trying to do brown face in 2018?!

-There was lots of good writing about the Louis CK comeback attempt yesterday, including from The Cut, The Daily Beast, and EW. I especially liked Rebecca Corry’s reflection on what has happened to her since she spoke out publicly about being one of his victims. But this account from two women who were actually at the show is a must-read: “It felt like there were a lot of aggressive men in the audience and very quiet women…There were at least four to five females that I could see, and three or four of them were not having it. They were just looking at him, deadpan, straight, not having it.”  Oh, and this little nugget: during his set he made a joke about rape whistles: “When he said ‘rape whistle’ people were laughing, and I was just sitting there like ‘oh my fuck.’ This is so uncomfortable and so disgusting. Everyone around me was laughing. That was just depressing.”

-Meanwhile, Michael Ian Black says he “hears all of your voices” in response to his Twitter defense of Louis CK, and has made a donation to two charities.

-Also, SNL’s Michael Che is still trash.

-Good on Gwyneth Paltrow for having a sense of humour about her “thinking about dick” meme.

Kanye West finally answered Jimmy Kimmel‘s question about Trump: “He wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community. So, it’s something he’s going to work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”

-The second season of American Vandals may be about poo, but critics say the show isn’t shit.

Alec Baldwin announced he’s no longer taking on the role of Bruce Wayne’s father in the Joker movie, sighting “scheduling” conflicts.

-In a new podcast, Clayne Crawford reflected on being fired from Lethal Weapon TV show — and he’s clearly learned nothing. Instead of being humble and apologetic and trying to prove to prospective employers that he’s worth a shot, he went with this instead: “Hollywood is very sensitive, so I should not have screamed and yelled, right, because it’s a bunch of very delicate flowers out there.”

-Paramount’s high-profile Top Gun sequel – starring Tom Cruise and Miles Teller – is being pushed back a year, and will now hit theaters in June 2020 instead of next July.

Ethan Hawke is not wrong about superhero movies.

-It sounds like Shaun Majumder’s departure from This Hour has 22 Minutes was not pleasant.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx: still a thing.

-Aww man, why is Amandla Stenberg having to defend her new movie Where Hands Touch? I *just* bought tickets to it! (It’s from the director of Belle so I have high hopes.)

-Yes to the tuxedo dress Meghan Markle wore to Hamilton.

Rosamund Pike is addicted to war zones in the Marie Colvin biopic A Private War.
